NEC promotes corporate citizen activities through collaboration between the public and private sectors to solve local issues more effectively.
Currently, collaborative programs with Minato Ward in Tokyo and Minamisanrikucho in Miyagi Prefecture are underway, and we intend to expand our collaboration with many other municipalities across the nation in the future.
Beginning in 2015, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government organizes an industry-government-academia collaboration event, TOKYO Mimi College (called "TOKYO Sign Language College" in 2015), with the aim of deepening understanding and interest in hearing impairment.
Since its start, NEC has co-hosted this event with Tokyo Metropolitan University.
Collaboration with the Tokyo Para-Sports Association began in 2016.
In 2019, NEC signed a comprehensive partnership agreement with the Tokyo Voluntary Action Center, which plays a central role in promoting volunteerism in Tokyo, in order to foster a volunteer culture, create volunteer legacies and promote the building of an inclusive society by leveraging the strengths of the two organizations.
Minato Ward in Tokyo
In Minato Ward of Tokyo where the NEC headquarters building is located, we hold lunch time gardening and family events on holidays to create the "Biodiversity Garden" with the slogan of "Habitat for Parantica sita butterflies in Shiba Park".
In support of "children's cafeterias", one of the programs that Minato Ward has in place to prevent children from eating alone and giving support to parents, NEC joined the Minato Ward Children's Cafeteria Network in February 2020.
Minamisanrikucho in Miyagi
In the NEC “TOMONI” Project, the company provides assistance by building on the social contribution programs that it has continued over the years, and employees visit the affected regions to work as volunteers.
